Tresa Long has been happily married to Steve, a Civil Engineer, for 37 years and God has blessed them with 9 children they adore. One of her favorite verses relates to God’s marvelous work in her life since she was told she might not ever be able to conceive. It is Psalm 126:3 "The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad!"
Tresa has been homeschooling her own children for 30 years so far. Her five grown children have gone on to become an IT professional, an AV contractor, an MD, and an RN. Her college junior is pursuing a mechanical engineering degree and her college freshman is studying to be a cardiac sonographer. Her three high school girls are taking college prep courses at CERC so that they will be ready to follow God wherever He leads.
Tresa taught Sunday School for 10 years and Private School for 3. Currently, she teaches at CERC and also teaches preschoolers to read through private lessons in University Park.
Tresa is teaching at CERC two secrets of success in school. One is early reading success through Phonics using the Rocket Reading program she designed. The other secret of success in school is memorizing all the basic Math Facts through “Math-it.” Kids love them both because they are just like games. But parents see the results in higher scores for years to come.
Tresa believes there should be much joy in learning and you will hear lots of laughter, high-fives and praise in her classroom. She also loves to help children catch a vision of what the Lord has given them talent to do. Tresa and her daughter, Dr. Elizabeth Long, give God all the glory, honor and praise for it, but the fact is that the first child Tresa taught to read is a Surgeon now.
Tresa would love to help your child learn to love learning as well.
Please email her if you have any questions.
